Why You’re Not Getting As Many Clients As You Should Be Getting

In this video, I cover one of the reasons so many local marketers are not getting as many clients as they think they should be getting. For so many local marketers they have the knowledge to do the work, but they struggle with getting clients. I am going to show you a big reason why!

    • Hi Patti,

      Good to hear from you. You’re welcome. We have all been guilty of this at some level. I am still my own worst client in many areas. But, I never try to sell something we are not doing at some level for ourselves. It’s a good reminder for us all.

  1. You sir are going to have crowds of angry “next big thing/shinny object” hawkers at your door with torches! Shame on you for bringing the harsh light of reality and truth to the fore.

    I don’t know how long it will take to drill the principal that you have touched on into the heads of some of my forum mates who continually ask “How can I get more clients” and in the next breath, they are asking what new product or “offline client getter package” should they buy.

    Hopefully one day they will learn, clients don’t buy products, they buy solutions from people they like, trust and more importantly are walking the walk not just talking the talk.

    • Appreciate the comments. You are exactly right! The average local business owner who has the money to afford a local marketer is pretty savvy. They did not get to where they are by being naive. They also face hundreds of sales people all pitching the next best thing. They do their due diligence and this is part of it. As for those pitching all the products and services based on theory….I used to be a firefighter, I can extinguish those torches pretty quick 🙂 Thanks again for the comments!

  2. Hi Mike, your timing is impeccable. I think of this topic just about once a month and look at all of the things I need to get off my plate and say to myself …. “next week”. I’m looking at over-hauling my existing site and making it look more professional, but I’m thinking that if I could break down everything I need to do into smaller bites over, say a week… it might not be as overwhelming to get through. Thanks for the nudge!

    • Hey Ken!

      Thanks for the comments. If I can offer any realistic advice based on my experience I would say to give yourself a month for the task you think would take a week. A week will fly by and you may not get it done. Instead if you figure out what you need to do and schedule it over the next month. It will not be overwhelming and you will not feel pressured to rush just to get it done. Glad this video was timely for you!
